νοσεῖ We expected καὶ νοσοῦντες οὐ νοσεῖτε, ὡς ἐγώ. But at the words ὡς ἐγώ the speaker's consciousness of his own exceeding pain turns him abruptly to the strongest form of expression that he can find —οὐκ ἔστιν ὑμῶν ὅστις νοσεῖ, there is not one of you whose pain is as mine. In Plat. Phileb. 19b （quoted by Schneid.） the source of the anacolouthon is the same: μὴ γὰρ δυνάμενοι τοῦτο κατὰ παντὸς ἑνὸς καὶ ὁμοίου καὶ ταὐτοῦ δρᾶν καὶ τοῦ ἐναντίου, ὡς ὁ παρελθὰν λόγος ἐμήνυσεν, οὐδεὶς εἰς οὐδὲν οὐδενὸς ἂν ἡμῶν οὐδέποτε γένοιτο ἄξιος, — instead of the tamer οὐκ ἂν γενοίμεθα.
